The ban on Pakistani artists in India remains a contentious topic. The Bombay High Court recently rejected a petition seeking to uphold the ban, but tensions following the 2016 Uri attack continue to influence the political and cultural landscape.  Mumtaz's comments add a voice of experience and appreciation for artistic exchange to the ongoing discussion.
